I want donuts... no! I want muffins... wait! I want both!

...so what about muffnuts? or doffins? :)

Hey sweeties,
last weekend I created a little hybrid in my kitchen - the crossing of muffins and donuts.
Oh and by the way: In my region donuts are called "Berliner" and are a typical pastry on Carnival - thats funny, cause in Berlin they are called "Pfannkuchen" - and "Pfannkuchen" are the standard pancakes in my region... sometimes its dazzling in Germany :D
You need for 12 Muffnuts:
for the dough:
280 g flour
a little pinch of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon natron
1 Egg
120 g sugar
80 ml neutral vegetable oil
300 g sour cream
for the filling:
12 Teaspoons of marmalade - I chooses strawberry-prosecco and raspberry-jam
for the topping:
120 g melted butter
50 g fine sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

preheat the oven at 180°C. Prepare the muffin-pan with papermolds.
Mix the dry ingredients for the dough together: flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda, natron and sugar in a bowl...
in a second bowl, mix the other things together: egg. sour cream, oil....
Mix the flour-mix into the egg-mix - but only blend it a bit - its totally okay if your dough has dry particles - that makes the finished muffnut more moist and not dry.
Fill the papermolds for a half....
put some marmalade in the center of them now....
 and cover it with the rest of the dough....
bake them for 20 minutes....
after that put them out of the pan when they are warm and brush them with the melted butter - then dip them in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon.... 
and now: om nom nom ;)


  1. Aww. That recipe is superb! That is definitely a creat crossing! Wonderful idea, I will definitely try it :)

    1. thanks a lot sweety <3 tell me about it, when you are trying out my recipe :-*

  2. It looks delicious! Sadly I don't have all the ingredients for this right now but I'll try :D

    1. you can replace some ingredients for others - for example: melted butter or margerine instead of oil or any milk-products like buttermilk, yoghurt, cottage cheese or milk instead of sour cream ;)

      have fun :)
